Paul Schrader’s latest film focuses on a pastor and his crisis of faith.
Dir Paul Schrader
With Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric Kyles
Arguably Schrader’s most Bressonian film, this centres on a pastor at a Dutch Reformed church in upstate New York: falling attendances, commercial compromise, his own private problems and those of his congregation combine to provoke a crisis of faith.
Bassam & Riz: God. Climate crisis. Second chances. Do we deserve them? One of the best meditations on the clash of modernity and faith.
